I have been researching a solution that would allow me to search for issues starting with (Sales). I have tried the following with no luck.
I have tried a bunch of other combinations with no luck. It either shows nothing or shows every issue where summary contains the word Sales. It appears to be completly ignoring the escaped parenthesis..
I found an issue that appears related to this but it shows as fixed
We are running JIRA v6.3.8
I appreciate any support with this issue. Thanks!
To add to the confusion the Summary ~ operation is returning user stories with the word Sale even though I am searching for
summary ~ "\\(Sales\\)"
I appreciate any response to this question. My inability to solve this is preventing us from moving off of google docs to manage our product backlog across the company.
I don't know if you have found your answer but I'll post here anyway. This is indeed very confusing. Judging by the snippet they have added in the documentation as a limitation based on the developer comment here https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-40790
what I understand is that all escaping of special characters does is help you include them in the search string ( instead of being an invalid query)...it doesn't actually include them in the search. If I understand the explanation of the developer correctly, special characters are stripped and not even indexed so searching for them is, well, impossible.
